'Big sister' Hingis looks to end 20-year Fed Cup wait

Published by , Friday 04/21/17 05:19

Martina Hingis looks to reach a first Fed Cup final in almost two decades when Switzerland face Belarus with the former world number one revelling in her role as the team's "big sister". Hingis, now 36, was just 17 when she and Switzerland were defeated 3-2 by Spain in the 1998 final. Since then, she has retired and made two comebacks, carving out a successful career as a doubles specialist. "My role is different these days but we are a strong team with a great spirit." Switzerland made the semi-finals by defeating two-time champions France while Belarus shocked the Netherlands despite the continued absence of former world number one Victoria Azarenka who has taken a break from the sport after giving birth to her first child.
